Let the Casting for ‘Spider-Man’s’ Girlfriend Begin!!!

Thursday, August 19 by

I hope you're all well-rested because the casting search for Spider-man's girlfriend has finally kicked off. We're going to track this thing over the next few months until director Marc Webb and Sony cut through all the bullsh*t and send out an official press release. Oh you better believe there are going to be rumors galore that we'll report on until you beg for mercy. But even then we won't quit because this is Spider-man damnit! You NEED to know every. Single. Little. Detail about every decision made and every actress cast aside. So let's get the hell on with it then. I'M PUMPED!
The first batch of frontrunners to possibly share an on-screen kiss with Spider-man are Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Emma Roberts, Ophelia Lovibond, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Lily Collins. Haven't heard of half of them? Yeah, well you hadn't heard of Andrew Garfield either but he's Spider-man now, isn't he? My vote is for Lily Collins simply because she's the spawn of Phil Collins. Maybe she can get her dad to write an original song for the film. Eeeeeeeeeee!!! (Vulture)

Maggie Gyllenhaal Inserts Herself Into Vibrator Film, ‘Hysteria’

Thursday, August 19 by

She's ready for her close-up.
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy have signed on for Hysteria, a comedy that focuses upon the invention of the vibrator and its effect on society in Victorian England. Jonathan Pryce and Rupert Everett are attached to co-star (OF COURSE). In the film, Dancy plays a doctor who uses a radical, new electronic device to toss off women who suffer from "hysteria," a malady whose symptoms include irritiability, anger, and unexplained tears. Weird, you can cure all those problems with a simple belt. That's how Dad did it. (Variety)

Renee Zellweger Puts Up With A Lot Of Crap In ‘Case 39′ Trailer

Thursday, August 19 by

Die Antwoord?
Paramount has finally set a release date for Case 39. After sitting on the shelf for close to three years, the Renee Zellweger horror flick will see the light of day on October 1st. And probably DVD on October 11th. B-ZING!!!
In the film, Zellweger saves a little girl from an abusive home, only to find out that evil follows the kid everywhere. People start dying all around them, and it turns into a fight for survival. That's pretty admirable. I'd be all like, "Sucks to be you. Good luck with that whole being haunted thing."
Seriously though, check out the trailer after the jump. It's spooky.

Mark Wahlberg to Produce HBO Porn Industry Show

Thursday, August 19 by

Mark Wahlberg and his producing partner Steve Levinson are busy dotting i's and crossing t's on "Entourage" and the upcoming "Boardwalk Empire," but that doesn't mean they don't have time for porn. The two are working on a series for HBO that will delve into the porn business using actors and adult performers. James Frey, the guy who lied to Oprah about being a drug addict, will write the pilot. The New York Post has the dirty details:
"The plot will focus on a giant video company under siege from Internet competitors and a girl from the Midwest whose boyfriend convinces her to move to Los Angeles to become a star," the Post wrote.

"We're going to make a sprawling epic about the porn business in LA," Frey told the paper." We're going to tell the type of stories no one else has told before, and go places no one has gone before."
While still keeping it grounded in reality? Alright, Frey, I'll believe you this time, but if I find out you're lying to me again I'm going to be extremely disappointed. Portraying explicit sexual acts without the facts to back them up is irresponsible and appalling. Unless there's oil.

Case 39

Synopsis: A social worker (Zellweger) fights to save a girl from her abusive parents, only to discover that the situation is more dangerous than she ever expected.

‘The Last Exorcism’ Chatroulette Gives Guys Blue Balls

Thursday, August 19 by

If by now you don't know what Chatroulette is than you probably think you're reading this on a toaster. Chatroulette offers people the opportunity to randomly video chat with one another, troll for hot chicks, or in more encounters than not, watch a dude masturbate. Some companies even set up fake feeds to advertise their products and websites. This is the exact approach Lionsgate took advantage of for this brilliant viral video for The Last Exorcism. Watch as dudes land on a hot chick hoping to get a flash of the goods, but instead get freaked the f*ck out. Kudos, marketing execs. Kudos.
Land on the hilarious video after the jump…

‘Piranha 3D’ Actress Jessica Szohr

Thursday, August 19 by

Jessica Szohr hails from "Gossip Girl." She shows off her talents there alongside Blake Lively, and in the upcoming Piranha 3D. While not the best material for an up-and-comer, they do highlight her well-mixed beauty and overdone appeal of consumerism gone mad.
A word from Jessica: "When I have a craving for something, I just can't hold myself back."
So you should be very understanding of the fish in the film you're currently starring in.

Whoa. Joey Lawrence, Wesley Snipes Finally Doing a Movie Together

Thursday, August 19 by

Once in a blue moon, a passion project comes together with all the right elements and you know it's going to blow people's minds. Havana Heat is that project. I don't know who called in what favors to make this a reality, but Joey Lawrence and Wesley Snipes are starring in the indie actioner for director Dean Hamilton, who's best known for his work on Blonde and Blonder.
"Havana Heat" centers on a Homeland Security agent based at Guantanomo who's murdered while undercover in Havana, where betrayal and intrigue take place against a backdrop of crumbling colonial architecture and vintage American cars.
Betrayal and intrigue and Lawrence and Snipes. That's either a film I can't wait to see or a law firm I don't want to be represented by. Shooting starts in November at an undisclosed location, but we've been assured all of the permits are in order. The red tape regarding Snipes in public places is ridiculous. (Variety)

Naomi Watts Exposed In ‘Fair Game’ Trailer

Thursday, August 19 by

"I'M ANGRY!!!"
Here we have a trailer for the Fair Game that doesn't include a naked Cindy Crawford. Doug Liman's Fair Game tackles the true life story of Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson. The story goes as follows: Bush wanted to go to war, so his administration misappropriated information from Joe Wilson's report detailing why war wasn't necessary. Wilson wrote a New York Times editorial, explaining their deception, which sparked a huge controversy. As revenge, the administration outed Plame (Wilson's wife) as a CIA agent to the world. That's cold. You don't mess with a Congressman's boo like that.
In the film, Plame is played by Naomi Watts and Wilson is played by Sean Penn. So don't expect a bloody shoot-out in the Oval Office as the film's climax. You'll have to wait for the John Cena version for that.
Watch the "ripped from the headlines" trailer after the jump…

National Lampoon’s Christmas Inception

Thursday, August 19 by

Here's the latest Inception mash-up for you, and hopefully one of the last. It's not that adding the Inception score to Christmas Vacation is a bad idea, it's just that this process could go on forever. Even Larry the Cable Guy's Witless Protection could be funny if mashed-up in such a manner. Alright, maybe not that movie, but you get my point.

Zombies vs. Horse: New Images From ‘The Walking Dead’

Thursday, August 19 by

Is it October yet? Damn. I'm counting down the days until AMC premieres "The Walking Dead." Judging from the line at the Comic-Con panel, I'm not the only one. The network has released a ton of materials to whet our appetites — stills, cast pics, a plethora of behind the scenes videos — and they're keeping them coming.
Here we have a series of images showing Rick Grimes attempt to make it out of Atlanta alive on horseback. Shoot, that's hard enough to do without being surrounded by the undead masses. Things don't pan out well for him. Or the horse. The zombies obviously haven't watched Food, Inc.. (AMC)
Check out the ghastly new images after the jump…

‘The Wire’s’ Idris Elba Is the New Alex Cross

Wednesday, August 18 by

Stringer Bell from "The Wire," actor Idris Elba, is taking over for Morgan Freeman as Dr. Alex Cross in Cross. The new installment of the James Patterson best selling novels will be directed by David Twohy, who will also rewrite the Kerry Williamson penned script.
Morgan Freeman chased after psychopaths as Cross in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, and he did it with class and a soothing tenor. Idris should carry the torch nicely, as he is a great talent who demonstrated on "The Wire" he can pop a cap in an ass, while on "The Office" he showed off his comedic chops. As a side note: doesn't it wrinkle your brain when British actors who you didn't know were British speak with a British accent? Quit fooling us, Red Coats! (Deadline) 

Justin Bieber Sneaks Into New ‘CSI’ Trailer

Wednesday, August 18 by

A trailer for the new season of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" runs through all the weird sh*t that has happened in seasons past. Not sure if this to inspire viewers to watch, or to make them realize, "Why the hell did I watch this crap?" But before that thought can sink in, they hit us with the image of a jailed Justin Bieber. I have a feeling he's only in there because he wants to be. He's like The Joker.
Check it out after jump…
